The Girls Yoga & Surf Retreat

Two seemingly different activities – yoga and surfing – combine together to create a perfect semblance of serenity. The Girls Surf yoga retreat brings challenge in both mental and physical senses, all while providing connection between the mind, body, soul, and the ocean. Surf yoga is a beloved way to unwind for many so we invite you to spend a 7 days and 7 night holiday in beautiful Lourinha exploring how vinyasa yoga supports strength building for surfing. As well as how surfing uses yoga and meditation to catch waves, and how yin yoga restores and heals after a day in the waves.
At our yoga surf retreat in Portugal all yoga classes are created and designed to support and strengthen your practice as well as your sustainability for surfing. Whether you’re a beginner surfer or yogi, or have experience in both, or maybe one or the other…our teachers will build your skills to apply on and off the mat, on and off the surfboard and make your Portugal surf camp vacation unforgettable.

We practice hatha, vinyasa, yin, and restorative yoga. as well as utilize various Pranayama (breathing) techniques in each class. Each session has time devoted to meditation, and all sessions incorporate effort of self-awareness, mindfulness and consciousness.
Our morning sessions are dedicated to preparing your body and mind for a day of surf. An energetic flow that utilizes poses specifically targeted to open and prepare the body for surfing techniques like pop-ups and balance, as well as focus and endurance of mind to help steady yourself on the waves.
To help you release your muscles and unwind from surfing, the afternoon classes focus on restorative or yin yoga.

Surfing

Back in the day, Hawaiians used to jump on 15ft boards and just cruise the green waves for the pure enjoyment and satisfaction of connecting with nature. Since then, surfing has evolved quite a bit, but the connection remains the same – immeasurable joy and adrenaline rush as we face the magnificent power of Mother Nature.
Nowadays, surfing comes in many varieties. From longboarding to short, punchy surfing, to deep barrels to just catching little rollers. No matter what the surf condition is, each wave is unique. Sometimes it’s extremely frustrating…you paddle for hours and maybe catch 1 wave. But when you catch that one wave, with your feet planted and you’re balanced and you just cruise, everything becomes all worth it.

Yoga practice & surfing

Yoga and surfing are quite complimentary. You must give your undivided attention to both. Any moments of distraction can have negative repercussions. Both encourage you to see each moment, feel each step, develop a connection to make it all work together. The physical practice of yoga can prepare your body for surf by opening and stretching, getting ready for pop ups and encouraging balance. The mental practice of yoga teaches you to focus, engage, and integrate step by step the physical with the mental to not become overwhelmed with the task at hand. In some cases, that means deciding whether to go for the wave or let it pass. In other cases, it means to stay steady in effort.
All of this together, in the words of surfers around the world: “More waves, more joy.”
